Can you please support or sponsor us with a donation ?
After the best part of ten very happy and productive years in Hingham we find that our local rural Post Office is closing. We are highly dependent on the local Post Office for sending small and inexpensive items
that may not economically be sent by courier. Therefore it is very likely that we will relocate again this year.
Our old customers, colleagues and friends will have followed our various moves over the years from our starting point in East Sussex, in 1986, to wild North Norfolk in 1993, to coastal east Suffolk in 1997, back
to North Norfolk in 2002, and most recently to rural South Norfolk in 2005.
In the last 28 years the book trade has changed beyond all recognition from selling by mainly by mail order catalogue to now exclusively on the internet.
Over time our mailing list has grown exponentially and like any other business just 20% of our clients provide 80% of our turnover. We are very grateful to those who continue buy from and recommend us.
This a direct appeal to all who wish to continue to support us to donate some funds towards our forthcoming move.
We require approximately £ 35,000 over and above our current capital and budget to purchase the property that we are interested in. It is not a particularly large sum, in fact as little as £ 20.00 from
each of the non-buyers to one of our typical marketing lists would solve it almost immediately.
Whether you are considering a book purchase or not this week and would like to continue to support
us donations of any amount, e.g. £20.00, £50.00, £100.00, £500.00, £1000.00, £5000.00, £10,000.00,

You may well have landed here through opening one of our marketing emails, please keep in mind that only 20% of our clients provide 80% of our turnover. Are you one of the many or one of the few ? We do appreciate your support. Thank you.
Yes, we still accept donations of books for charity.
Where can I donate books I no longer need ?
Donating is really very easy – all you have to do is contact us.
We accept donations of books and clear houses (we also handle stamp collections and other items).
We can easily collect in East Anglia ; Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Lincolnshire, but distance really is not an object.
Please telephone or email us ; we will be pleased to help.
We support by donation the National Trust at Blickling Hall, the East Anglia's Children's Hospices, and the RSPCA.
We give about 5 tonnes of books a year to charity, references available.
